I did the hair and makeup for the July 2010 cover and inside spread for Cleveland Magazine. This was shot by photographer Bonnie Holland. Since the model was supposed to be gardening i decided to tone down the makeup and just give her a natural glow. I prepped and primed the skin with Dermalogica Active Moist and Skin Hydrating Booster. I then applied a light to medium coverage of Temptu S/B foundation with an airbrush gun. The cheeks were blushed with Temptu’s new blush color Guava and then highlighted with Temptu’s Pink Pearl Highlighter. I lightly filled in the brows with a dark brow powder and then defined the eye line with a dark brown powdered eye shadow. The lips were lightly filled in MAC Subculture Lip Liner and then glossed with MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar.
A few months ago I had an idea to shoot on a stark white set with vibrant pops of color. I approached Bonnie with this idea and she loved it immediately. The editorial was featured in the Summer Issue of Genlux Magazine and the images are below.
To get the look: I prepped and primed the skin with Dermalogica Skin Care and then airbrushed the face with Temptu Pro S/B Foundation in shade #4. I then highlighted the face with Temptu Pro Champagne Shimmer and blushed the cheeks with Temptu Pro Guava S/B Blush. Several different eye shadows were used for this shoot like Orange and Yellow Pigment from MAC Cosmetics and NARS Rated R Eye Shadow. Lips were kept nude or had a vibrant pink hue. For the body I used Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream mixed in with tons of sunscreen so the model did not burn in the hot sun.
On June 27th, I have the privilege of speaking at the IMATS show in Pasadena on behalf of Temptu Pro. The class will be in Classroom C from 2:15 to 3:15. I will be demonstrating some high fashion and avant-garde beauty looks all with an airbrush.

I have been working on this blog for a few weeks now and have decided there is no way I can combine my makeup kit staples into one post. So I decided to break this up into 4 sections, Skin Care, Face, Lips and Eyes. Some of the items below are things I have been using for years and some I have only been using for a few months. All of these products I use on a daily basis, I even use many of them on my self. The largest bag in my makeup kit is by far my skin care bag. I have tried so many skin care items from cheap to expensive and have found that these items work best for me and what I do.
I updated the Stacey Dash post with higher res and more images from the shoot. Check out the beautiful shots below. I created this look using Temptu’s AIRbrush Makeup System available at Sephora with Shade 009 Golden and Highlighted with 302 Gold. Body shine was created using Baby Oil Gel.Photography: Deborah Anderson Makeup: Anthony Merante Hair: Marcia Hamilton Styling: Anita Patrickson

Here is part two of my shoot with Giuliano Bekor during our Shoe Fetish series. I love how sexy and sensual these shots ended up being.
To get this look: I airbrushed the face and body with Temptu’s S/B Foundation. I then filled in the brows with a Smashbox Eyebrow Powder and Pomade. The eyes were lined with a Shu Uemura Liquid Eye Liner pen and two pairs of Make Up For Ever lashes were applied to the top lash line. Lips were shaped with a nude lip pencil and then glossed with a cherry lip gloss from Stila. Nails were painted Black Satin from Chanel.

Here is a ad campaign I did for the NEW Dove Men’s skin care line. This ad is running in most men’s fitness magazines out right now. The ad was shot by Aaron Rapoport.
The makeup was applied with a Temptu Airbrush System using S/B Foundation.
Dove Men’s skincare is available at Target and Walmart.
Last December I did a photo shoot with Bre Scullark from America’s Next Top Model. We had been shooting some beautiful clothing all day and when we were done, decided to do a quick beauty shot. I stripped off most of her makeup from that day and wanted to go for a clean beauty look. I defined her eyes with a black kohl pencil, sculpted her cheeks with some bronzer and gave her a gorgous fresh lip with some lip balm and a touch of clear lip gloss. The end result was these 4 beautiful images.
